On March 17 the regal new St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort in Florida officially opened with a festive fete complete with a fireworks display. John Baptiste of Jazz at Lincoln Center provided live entertainment to accompany cocktails and hors d’oeuvres by Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
Throughout the evening guests including Diane Kruger, Arizona Muse (the new face of Estée Lauder) St. Regis Connoisseurs Jason Wu and Nacho Figueras, style mavens Mary Alice Stephenson and Ann Caruso, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts Global Brand Leader Paul James and Starwood Hotels & Resorts CEO Frits van Paasschen mingled by the pool and luxe cabanas.
The brand’s legendary St. Regis Butlers performed signature St. Regis rituals such as Bloody Mary mixing and champagne sabering for the chic crowd, which numbered nearly 500 in all. The stylish St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort features 243 elegantly appointed guestrooms and suites, as well as luxurious private residences, with décor by award-winning interior design firm Yabu Pushelberg.
Housed in three all-glass towers rising 27 stories above an expansive stretch of beach, the resort also features an enormous 14,000-square-foot Remède Spa, the J&G Grill conceived by famed Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, and of course signature St. Regis Butler service.
